Hugo Lloris is aiming to stay at Tottenham Hotspur and play under new coach Mauricio Pochettino, ruling out ongoing speculation of a switch to big-spending PSG.

The France international goalkeeper and captain continued to impress in Brazil as he guided his country to the World Cup quarter-finals, after another athletic campaign for Tottenham that linked him with several destinations.

PSG speculation

Speculation of a potential move to French Ligue 1's champions PSG or FC Barcelona at the end of last Premier League season in May were frustrating Spurs fans, hearing that Lloris is fed up of no Champions League football again.

But when asked if he should still be at White Hart Lane next season, he told reporters: "Yes, I should be. I don’t want to speak about my situation now."

Lloris is just looking forward to his holidays and recovering from his summer World Cup's efforts to join Spurs' news coach Pochettino trainings on top of his form, ready for the forthcoming season.

He continued: “I need a few days to recover and after that to relax, have a good rest and come back for next season.

"I think I will speak soon about that and we will deal with it."

Top class performer

Lloris joined Tottenham on transfer deadline day on August 31, 2012 for a fee at £12million, and since then the 27-year-old keeper remained magnificent for his side - being one of the best keepers in the Premier League.

Last season the French keeper made 126 saves and conceded not even half-of them, being beaten 58 times.

Having played in all competitions for the north Londoners with 45 appearances and 4050 minutes of action, these are the numbers that allowed him to keep Spurs a top four contender in the Premier League.

Spurs ultimately finished 10 points behind fourth Arsenal due to an incredible number of injured players, but some issues defensively with weak areas and a lack of goals up-front were also the causes of a sixth place finish.

Spurs' Argentinean coach Pochettino has started his pre-season training last week, and it seems that all the players are fully fit, with Erik Lamela preparing for his first real season at White Hart Lane.
